The impact of poverty on health care spending

June 9, 2016

Merritt Hawkins logoWashington Hospital Services Industry Partner Merritt Hawkins would like to share a blog article discussing the relationship between poverty and the increased demand on health care services. The article suggests that policy makers often do not account for the income level of the community when pointing to examples of who is doing a “good” job in managing their patient populations. It also suggests that spending on social services can be an important aspect of reducing overall health care costs. This blog post can be found here.
